The HAV shake

I don't have tons of dog experience with dogs -- but I've never noticed another breed that shakes so frequently. Not shivers, like scared or cold, but SHAKES, like rearranging their hair. My havs do it every few minutes: after petting, sleeping, stretching, walking, playing, or nothing at all.
Is this typical for other breeds too? I don't have weird shaky havs, do I?

Dora is very well known for this to all my non hav friends- I think most hav people just notice it. She will do a perfect recall right into me, stop perfect her hair and then sit down. Also when I take the agility lead off, she has to look good before go. We all have our things and I think my little girl wants to finish looking stunning!

Donna,
Not nearly as much. Once in awhile, but she would rather rub around on the ground or on a pillow. Dora shakes her hair back into place. I have to have it on a video, I

Kubrick shakes a lot too! We're actually working on him learning to shake on command. Since he does it so often naturally, I'm thinking he will learn it pretty soon.

You can add Tori to the list of "chronic shakers".

It's like one of those shampoo commercials on TV...they want to show off their shiny, swingy hair...

I don't think Milo does that. Maybe he doesn't care how he looks.

OH MIss Lilly is a shaker. My dear dear hubby just hates because she always does it right after smelling his moustacheo. She has to smell every inch of it to see what he had to eat that day. It is so funny to me but not him..
